Using OBD fusion on my pickup I was able to determine that the check engine light was on because I have a cylinder 8 misfire. It still ran okay besides the hesitation on acceleration but now the registration is coming due and the state of California wants me to get a smog check.

I looked into this repair and saw that I could switch the coil-on-spark between the number 8 cylinder and another one, clear the codes, and see if it resets onto the other cylinder to determine the cause of the code. I tried that and no code has reset even though I drove to the next city but OBDfusion says, "This vehicle is not ready for emissions testing."

Any help would be appreciated.
